There is so much going on this week I already have to post photos.  I worked from home on Tuesday because the crane was supposed to come and move the trusses up for installation.  Unfortunately he was only there for an hour, so when I arrived the crane was long gone and two trusses were already installed.  I knew all of them would be installed in short order, and the decking on the roof was going to go on this week, so I planned on returning Friday to take more pictures.

My mom came back into town from visiting my brother in Baltimore, and decided to stop by today.  She told me that not only were all the trusses installed, but the excavation in the backyard for the future stairwell was already done!  I rushed home to catch what little daylight was left and took some low quality pictures on my mobile phone.  The guys that are working on the house are great, when my mom showed up she popped her head up the ladder and they brought her up, walked her around, and talked with her at length about what was going on.

On to the pictures…
